Dear Jan,

When doing free motion quilting I have knots at the beginning of each set...could you tell me why and how to fix it? The back of my quilts don't look as good as I would like.


Dear Anna,

When you begin, bring the bobbin thread to the top. Take a couple of stitches in place to secure and then begin your free motion quilting. This should prevent the bobbin thread from nesting on the back.
